## Is their are any job vacancies in PSU sector for btech manufacturing engineering students .If their are any vacancies then in which branch code they should give GATE exam ???

Aman Raj Student Expert 16th Oct, 2019

Hello Sorabh

It is directly or indirectly related with ME. So

If you like thermal, apply for ME, If you don't like thermal apply for PI.

In other terms, if you like manufacturing and management - apply for PI.

You must know that seats for ME in IIT's are 900+ whereas for Manufacturing and production it is around 150+ only.
